Section 11 and Schedule 2: Strategy for carrying out functions

81.Section 11 places a duty on the NDA, once established, to prepare a strategy for carrying out its functions and to keep that strategy under review. Whenever the NDA is given a new responsibility for securing the decommissioning or clean up of an installation or site, it must review the relevance of its strategy for that purpose and, if need be, revise its strategy accordingly (subsection (2)).

82.Under Schedule 2, the strategy must be approved by the Secretary of State and, in respect of responsibilities given to the NDA jointly under section 6, by Scottish Ministers. Schedule 2 sets out various procedural arrangements for preparing and revising the NDA’s strategy including timing; consultation by the NDA as part of the process of preparing or revising its strategy; approval of the strategy by the Secretary of State, and publication of the strategy once approved. Further information can be found at the notes to Schedule 2.
